Yeah, I have been thinking about it for the past few days. Originally, before Chevy got hurt, I was thinking about someting like "Getting the Chevy Tuned Up For a Drive to Detroit" :D

That may be the number of students left at each school after they beat each other with their hockey clubs at the High-Fructose-Taco-Hut-but-no-Burgers place in Denver last night.

Man, I've been out of Colorado for a long time. CU and CSU with hockey teams?:eek: I assume it's club hockey. At first I thought was a joke:rolleyes:

Can you imagine if we played these teams? I:eek:

Pretty impressive getting 3,000 fans to a game at a neutral site for two club teams.

I got mine this week and Erich and his people have done a nice job. My only quibble is that the book apparantly doesn't provide a key to identifying the 25 players on the cover. I think I've got it worked out, but a list would be helpful.

No joke - its pretty serious stuff for club hockey... and yes, they do play DU. Look at their schedule near the bottom of this page:

DU beat CSU's club 6 - 5 on October 24. Seat7 and i used to go to CSU games when DU wasn't playing. Nice mix of that college atmosphere and SlapShot.

DU's CLUB team plays CU and CSU. If DU's WCHA team played CU or CSU's club team, they'd win by at least 10 goals.

The last club team DU's varsity played was Iowa State in 1981, and DU racked up about 20 goals in the weekend series. It was ugly.

Yep, sorry to make you clarify it. CSU does rank high in the ACHA Division II standings every year. CU not so much. It is a big rivalry. Beating CU makes some Ft. Collins people think that CSU is ready for NCAA Division I.

Yeah, 10-4 and 10-1. You wonder who arranged that slaughter, and why. Probably the Iowa State guys thought, what the heck, any excuse to get out of Ames. And maybe they got a comparatively good pay day out of it.
But really, a D-1 team playing a club team?

ISU was drawing 4,000-6,000 fans per game in that era at home, and Al Murdoch, the coach, knew Ralph Backstrom...

Ahh, the legendary Al Murdoch. No surprise that you've got his C.V. :) So we've got the connection, but it still boggles the imagination that we played 'em. Those were different days, of course, you wouldn't see that nonsense now.

That's pretty good attendance, especially since the games were probably played in the poultry exhibition hall (just kidding). I don't know about now, but for many years the Ice Cats at the University of Arizona also drew quite well, which IIRC generated some talk about them going D-I.

The DU score may be closer to 20-0. Alabama Huntsville played Tennessee (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i45IsSYF-PI) last year and won 13-0.

DU was all lined to play Penn State's club team in Magness Arena this season when DU found out that it would count as a "regular season" game for scheduling purposes and not an "exhibition waiver" like the games against the Canadian universities.

I'm sure that many schools would rather play a Penn State than a Canadian school for attendance purposes, but this is why most D-1 programs don't play club teams.
